Everyone’s heard that Intel has purchased McAfee for some $7+ Billion dollars.  With the acquisition, Intel looks to better integrate security in nearly everything they make, with mobile devices and cloud solutions (servers & storage) being of the utmost priority.

Paul Otellini, Intel’s CEO, said in a statement, “In the past, energy-efficient performance and connectivity have defined computing requirements. Looking forward, security will join those as a third pillar of what people demand from all computing experiences.”  Well said Paul…

As a Seagate guy, it sounds so familiar… energy efficient performance, connectivity, and security in one package. Where have I heard that before?

Oh yeah…Seagate’s Unified Storage for the enterprise…

Seagate’s Unified Storage is a relatively new concept.  Maybe Intel’s desire to establish security as a technology pillar will help drive awareness for “other” security options out there.  Self-encrypting drives is just one of them.

Thanks Intel.
